Last month I had a vacation of sorts (as I mentioned before). During this time, I had some personal revelations about my life—both personally and work wise. I lend this to the fact that I spent multiple days at a time unplugged and completely disconnected from the Internet. No laptop. No tablet. No smartphone.
I highly recommend you do it sometime—if not regularly.
Not only did it force me to pause, clear my head, and have some self-reflection, but it also gave me a chance to contrast what I considered to be my ‘normal’ life with actual living.
One of the things I learned and would like to share with you has to do with my life as a digital tentmaker, but could also be a lesson for a fulltime freelancer or small business owner.
